HP has unveiled a new range of high-performance ZBook convertible PCs, laptops, and mobile workstations.
HP’s fifth-generation ZBook refresh brings Intel’s brand-new 8th-generation Coffee Lake Xeon mobile processors to the table in the updated 15-inch ZBooks, the Studio, and the new Studio x350.
The new Xeon E3-2176 and E3-2186 CPUs are available in the top-end configurations of the ZBook Studio and ZBook Studio x360, otherwise they’ll be powered by four- or six-core Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs. However, the Xeon chips bring support for ECC memory and include Nvidia Quadro P1000 discrete graphics.
Both the ZBook Studio and ZBook Studio x360 can be configured with up to 32GB of RAM and 4TB of SSD storage, with GPU memory of 4GB.
